Vertical markets

Understanding not just the technology, but how the technology is applied

It's true to say that we have assisted organisations from a variety of sectors with their IT personnel needs. The main sectors we are established in include:

Banking & Financial Services
Our London satellite office is situated in the heart of the city near St. Paul's. Following proven delivery we are considered the preferred supplier of choice to Europe’s largest financial clearing house and a major overseas bank with EMEA HQ in London. We assist a number of other organisations within the banking and financial trading community with their IT recruitment needs too. We have built up an excellent portfolio of candidates who specialise in delivering technology solutions across all asset classes. IT Banking recruitment is most definitely one of our key vertical markets and we have an experienced, dedicated team that service this sector.

Insurance, Asset Management & Pensions
We have established relationships with a number of insurance and re-insurance providers. Our client portfolio also includes the world’s 3rd largest Asset Management organisation (and we have been fortunate to be a PSL supplier to them for 7 years now). We also assist a number of pension providers with their IT recruitment needs.

We work with a number of well know large retail groups and are privileged to be an approved IT recruitment partner to UK’s best-loved retailer, a name that resonates trust and quality. We see retail as a vibrant and exciting industry sector that constantly needs to evolve to maintain competitive edge. We also assist some smaller niche, growing retail brands get more from their IT systems by identifying quality IT professionals to develop systems to study buying patterns, streamline supply chains and improve web purchase experiences.

Software & IT Services
Outsource service providers, consultancies and software developers make up a good percentage of our portfolio of clients. Some are embryonic and need us to help attract forward thinking IT candidates that can see growth potential, take a leap of faith and join. Others are global consultancies that need IT professionals to represent them on site appropriately to deliver a first class service to end clients.

Public sector
From educational establishments to govt. departments we source CRB certified and security cleared IT professionals to work on public service applications both on a local and national level. We are the sole preferred IT recruitment partner to what is probably the UK's leading University for IT thought leadership.

Charity sector
If you are a registered charity with a reliance on IT, partnering with Deerfoot are a good choice. We will work hard to deliver true value and offer our most competitive fee terms possible. We have been a key supplier to two of the UK’s largest and most visible charities for several years and have in the past year been working with a charity that has very much come into the public eye.
